Since your friend does not have a written employment contract
, your friend appears to be an employee at will. Unfortunately an employee at will may have her hours cut, pay reduced or be terminated at any time. The employer does not require a reason to do so. The employer may even discharge the employee for a mistaken reason
Here is how it works.
Absent a written agreement to the contrary, an employee can be treated differently or discriminated against for any reason, as long as the reason is not prohibited by law.
Federal laws prohibit employment discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability,past, current, or future military obligations, FMLA usage or filing a workers compensation
